Dinah

I had to audiotape sessions on internship, and so no getting around what happened in sessions. Plus I had more supervison than most people get on an internship and by Menninger trained people. At Menninger's for my postdoc, I had tons of supervision as well, and with therapy patients, we had to do process notes. This means you have to learn to reconstruct the session from memory. Starting out with:

Patient: xxxxx.
Therapist: xxxx
Patient: xxxx
etc.

It is really hard to do, and as the research says, it is easiest to remember the beginning and end and less easy to remember the middle, but one does get better at it. Why would I or anyone who had the opportunityh to train where I did want to squander the training by trying to pull a fast one over a supervisor??? It would have been darn hard to do there too. I sure didn't try to do anything of the sort. I guess I am not so cynical about this, but I know it comes up in therapy and we talked about how to handle things of this sort in group supervision as well as in individual supervison. It is just too important a topic to ignore in my opinion.
